    But … but … it’s what George Washington should have said …

  • He (or, more precisely, the staffer that actually posts) should have known it was fake. George Washington isn’t even on Twitter.

    About GW quotes: does anybody know if the conservatives’ favorite is true? I’m referring to the one about (paraphrasing) “don’t call me king, call me Mr. President.”

    Even if it were a real quote, why would talking positively about “governing the world” indicate a love for America? I thought conservatives felt that “globalism”and “world government” were the antitheses of patriotism?
